New Music from Jack Saunders – A Real Good Place to Start

So the soundtrack for a  recent run was the new album from a mainstay of the Texas Music scene Jack Saunders  A Real Good Place To Start is Saunders fourth solo album and is now number 22 on the Euro-Americana music chart. Jack has been around the Texas music scene since the 1970s, when he moved to Dallas from rural Alaska. Saunders finally landed in Houston and through…

Most of the ’80s and half of the ’90s Jack played with Shake Russell – first as a bassist in his band and then for 6 or 7 years as a duo mate and lead guitarist, sharing the writing and singing, as a duo.

In 1996, Jack opened White Cat Recording in Houston. Since then, he’s split his time at the studio, performing solo or with a band, and has released four CDs of his own. He has also played in the bands of many of his favorite artists, such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, Greg Trooper, Randy Weeks, Susan Gibson and Hayes Carl, while at the same time producing and recording dozens of titles in his studio for other songwriters.

As I listened to the album, there was at least one song that reminded me of Greg Trooper’s music. Overall the album contains eleven well written and delivered  songs . I really liked the album and it will get a lot of listens over the next few weeks!

Here’s Jack performing – “That’s How I Got To Memphis”, which appears on the album!
